Practice guide: Incentivising employees after a transaction

Speed read

SPEED READ Effective incentives for employees are key especially following an acquisition. Using HMRC approved plans and linking awards to corporate targets is a tax-effective way to reward employees and enhance performance of the company. The tax-effective nature of the plans minimises corporate cost but enhances benefits to employees through tax savings.
